Visual and Audio Enhancement; Your Opinion Matters!

Hey, everyone! 你好吗?Salut, ca va? I’d go on, but I am lazy.

Wait, why am I writing in a big empty white text box again? Oh, right! I have an idea for 2013! Yeah, I haven’t been around that long on here, but it is never too late to change something within the format of my blogging.

Well, I thought about it. You might not always have the energy to read my intensively engaging articles. That’s a bummer, right? Maybe you had a long day? Maybe you would rather listen to your bed time story so you can relax and play it on repeat? That is perfectly fine! There is a solution to this! After my French Phonetics class at the University of Connecticut, I concluded that Audacity is the best program to use to record my voice! I will use this to my advantage in my posts. I can also use my Canon Rebel T3i to make video blogging possible. That’s if you would rather see my face while listening to my voice. Two for the price of one? Yes.

HEY! Yeah, YOU! STOP STARING AT THAT PICTURE! Also, if you like that animated GIF, I can make more posts with just that or have them become part of my articles. If I left them alone without any articles, they will be much bigger. However, I could make a separate page just to show them off. Let me know in the comment section below if you are interested in a larger picture. That doesn’t freak me out at all.

YOU DECIDE! I have an amazing support group here at WordPress. Thank you so much for hanging out with me for the last two months. If I didn’t have any followers, I would be talking to myself. Well, not that it doesn’t happen often anyways!

Now, what are you deciding? The options are as follows: would you like to listen to my voice, see videos, and/or have animated GIFs of me? Or, keep it simple without the new proposal? Let me know! If you choose to ignore the poll, fine. Feel free to comment!

Note: Remember my linguistic background? Yeah, I can also use that to my advantage. So, if you are from a French-speaking country, allons-y! If you are from a Spanish-speaking country, ¡Vamos! Although my Mandarin Chinese and Arabic are on an elementary level, as well as my Italian, I can still try my best to please my diversified followers!

Thanks everyone!

Take care.

Romantic Résumé; Marketing Yourself for Love in 2013

Happy New Year! Wait, does that traditional phrase  jinx our chance at love this year? Are there any hopeless romantics dusting off their sleeves for their heart to breathe through one last year of hope?

According to StatisticBrain.com, falling in love fell at #9 for Top 10 New Year’s Resolutions for 2012. Is 2013 your time to shine for romance and a long-term commitment? Although the recent study published from the University of Scranton in the Journal of Clinical Psychology did not show the participant sample that represented Americans, as a whole, these  New Year’s Resolution Statistics for 2012 might show that hope is running out very quickly for this year. According to the study, relationship related resolutions fell at the bottom of the categories at 31%. What matters more than finding Mr. Right? Self-improvement, weight related concerns, and money resolutions!

I am sorry, but I cannot help you with weight loss or financial assistance. I can give you encouragement to train yourself harder every day, but you will eventually snap at my advice because I am not there running with you. It may seem as if I am running against you. I can also help you become frugal, but who am I to control your lifestyle and the spending involved throughout the year? I will, however, help you with self-improvement and then the relationship building for 2013.

Polish Your Romantic Résumé

What the hell is a romantic résumé? Does Cupid have a romantic résumé, or how about Prince Charming? Mr. Right’s romantic résumé is extremely outstanding to read! Ladies, talk about overqualified!

Everyone has a passionate side about relationships, regardless how prude or introverted they are around their own peers. It is completely natural and very common to hide these ideas for their own personal preference. We are all human, and we all have romantic tendencies to engage and indulge in something that will arouse our senses. This could be a simple butterfly kiss on the forehead to something more playful and seductive if done right, like Eskimo kisses.

Now, when was the last time you have ever felt intimacy with another person? Let’s break it down into categories called bases. How many times have you allowed someone else, or yourself, to go to first base? Second base? Third? How about some grand slams, or home runs? Maybe you’re just a rookie who needs some pointers. That’s fine. Let me help before you step up to the plate once again – or at least, for the first time professionally. Sorry boys, this isn’t Little League anymore.

Check out my romantic résumé below. I have used my real name, my real email address, and partly some of my residence. Sorry, don’t get me wrong, I love intimate encounters with strangers, but I do not encourage those surprises! My linguistic skills and my interests are accurately written as well. I have provided a sample of how you will discover your strengths and weaknesses by laying them out in a professional format:

Emotional Baggage

Does a romantic résumé include past relationships under work experience? Any potential employer, or prospective partner,  would love to see how long your relationships might have lasted, but that is not necessarily conveying the overall quality of  each one. Now, what if you didn’t have any experience in the love department? Maybe your experiences hindered your ability to do better, and now you have bad work habits.  How do you refine yourself from those experiences? If you are willing to let go of emotional baggage, let me know.

You need to discover yourself before you discover everyone else. You need to find your strengths, weaknesses, and insecurities. You need to face everything and anything that may hinder your chance at finding the most suitable partner for your life. I am willing to help you find yourself, and your soul mate.

If I have enough interest from my hopeless romantic viewers, I will share my secrets of success at relationship building. Keep in mind – you will build your own relationship from within before you tackle one with someone else. You will feel confident, independent, and beautiful in what you do and what you say when you naturally market yourself for a successful relationship. This process will not force you in any way to step out of your own comfort zone. If you are introverted, I will suggest something to help you open up more. If you are extroverted, maybe you need a suggestion to cool down from being too open with people. If you have any problems along the way, it’s not you – it’s them.

Vote for change in 2013! Vote now! If you aren’t sure, fine. Let me know that you still read this article. I may count the “not sure” votes as “maybe” votes. Then, I will post the results and start refining relationships. Everyone is different, but we all have similarities and differences. This is a challenge, but it is well worth the wait.

Twenty Less Than 3; A Compiled New Year’s Resolution Post

Hey everyone! I am terribly sorry that I did not post for an entire week! Yes, I am still alive! I was busy with friends and family. Did you have a safe, warm family oriented Christmas? Did you meet your version of the Fockers? As the next year approaches within less than ten hours in China, ambition and drive overwhelms our minds until the first week of the New Year with barely any results. Does that sound familiar? Maybe a new slate is not necessarily easy to handle, but let me give you some encouragement.

Whether 2013 is a year for healthier diets, weight loss, throwing out the cancer sticks, finding a career, or establishing a love life, I wish you all the best of luck in your endeavors.  Don’t ever give up! It’s your life! Change starts now.

I have compiled a personal New Year’s resolution list below, and I hope to follow through with it, with the support of everyone within the WordPress community.

Blogs

Prinze Charming has reached nearly 6,000 views of all time since the grand opening on November 12th, 2012. That is definitely an accomplishment already! I have visited plenty of blogs in the last month, noticing their views, and then their long compiled list of archives. I don’t have a long list of posts, but my reputation is extremely respectable. How does this happen? It’s simple. Commitment, quality, and support.

Stay committed to what you do for others and for yourself. Remember – this is advice for you to take into 2013. If you love what you are doing, continue doing it! If it is way too much to handle, slow down. I tried extremely hard to keep up articles every week. Blogging is like a full-time job!  I would hate to ask for donations as I try my best to find a legitimate career, but I have student loans to pay every month. The donation button is in my About Me section. As I mentioned, I will make sure to acknowledge these contributions on the bottom of my page. So, you will benefit from it by being listed as a great blog to follow. I will hope that my active followers visit your page for inspiration as well.

Quality is definitely important. I understand some people are writing about personal events in their life that might have inspired them. Is it really worth sharing the news that you had a similar sign from God in the movie, Running with Scissors? Probably not. Can you make it worth the visit?  Try to become more presentable.

Your voice is not only heard, but it’s read from many viewers. Ask yourself if you would read your own articles over and over. Would you actually share them with the world after you finish reading them? If the quality isn’t there, reorganize your intentions. Give your viewers something to indulge with enthusiasm! Invest their time wisely with what you have to say.

Lastly, support is definitely important. It’s not only the support for you, but for others. Are you a frequent user who only likes posts, but never comments on anything you ever liked? Fake? Yes. Supportive? Probably not.   In 2013, you should step out of your liking frenzy and start commenting. Believe it or not – it will actually improve your writing and your overall feedback. How hard is it to read a couple of articles a day and leave feedback on all of them? Make the best of it! In the last month that I have been here, I always found one other article that relates to one of my articles. That is an intense feeling to take an advantage of an opportunity and share something relevant to what I read from someone else. Maybe you don’t have anything else to share? Let someone else inspire you. 

Poetically Captivating 

Did I start with a bang or what? My first article, “An Erotic Masterpiece; A Painting of One Thousand Words,” deserves a lot of acknowledgement for reaching an extraordinarily high demand of reblogs within a short amount of time. This article, as well as my sensualist article,  is the main reason I’m here. I am the next young romance novelist. Is that my career goal? No. It is definitely something to have aside for those days when I need to relax and release passionate tension from within my soul.

I created Poetically Captivating to step aside from the engaging articles to something more loose and relaxed. I am glad to see some interest for my other poetic posts, and I hope to continue maintaining that blog just as well as this one. I am not going to reblog everything, so if you have interest, follow that one as well. As I said, this is almost like a full-time job. I hope to find a career more financially stable and promising in 2013.

Career 

I am a recent University of Connecticut graduate with a B.A. in Political Science. I would love to find government work experience at an entry-level. Is it easy? Maybe. Am I marketable? Extremely! My About Me section is almost designed as my résumé. I would add work experience, and remove my photogenic profile. With my linguistic background, I have many career paths available for me. I applied to many places, but persistence is definitely important. If the fish doesn’t bite the first time, reel it in and try again. I hope I find something soon. My student loans will continue to haunt me until they are entirely paid off.

Health 

Now, this is a very common topic for a New Years resolution list. What does a 23-year-old ask about concerning their health? Well, I am not a smoker. I am not an alcoholic, unless it’s intoxication of thy lips. So, what else would there be? Fitness. I would love to start running again. That would be amazing! I am definitely ready to throw some mileage down for 2013. When I have the job down the street, I will definitely walk to work.

Love 

Oh, ouch. What a cupid question! Too many daggers, not enough aim. No, just kidding. I am going to remain silent about this one. Let me just say this –  6 long years of being single. Does that mean I am alone? No. Does that mean I have cats? No, but yes I do have two cats. I am not using them as a part of my “forever alone” speech.

Reading 

I am a compulsive buyer! When I see books like, “Seeds of Terror; How Drugs, Thugs, and Crime are Reshaping the Afghan War” or “Opium Nation; Child Brides, Drug Lords, and One Woman’s Journey Through Afghanistan,” I instantly buy books on impulse! Sorry, let me remind you. I have a B.A. in Political Science. I am primarily focused on Middle Eastern, European, and East-Asian studies. I would show you the covers of other books awaiting my fingertips, but then you’ll see how crazy I am about global issues. A book I could recommend from my International Political Economy (IPE) course from a while ago would be Joe Bennett’s, “Where Underpants Come From?” Now, this is an excellent book! It is extremely entertaining and educational. I would write more about it, but I have to cut this short. Sorry. Check out book reviews!

Writing 

Novel? Oh, right! How is that coming along? Well, I hope to expand on it in 2013! My inspiration might actually come from recent life experiences! Yes, feel the envy build up inside. Mmm.

 Did you know I have 31 published posts, including this one? I also managed to rack up 7 drafts!  Would you like a sneak peek at what could be published before concluding 2012? Ha, now why would I spoil the fun? Ok, fine. I’ll give you a few teases. The topics will include: Exhibitionist, online dating, kissing debate – snow or rain?, flower petals – do they really predict love?, decline in qualitative love – why is time prioritized?, and let me introduce – a personal confession that will make everyone speechless!  Stay tuned!

2013 will be primarily focused on the theme, “Twenty Less Than 3,” which would look like, “20<3,” instead of, “2013.” The catch? All it takes is less than three for success.

You and me.  ❤

I wish everyone the best of luck in health, happiness, and the rest of your endeavors of 2013! Don’t party too hard! Does anyone have any plans? First New Year’s kisses? Please share your stories! Let me know what you wish to read more about in 2013 from my blog! Maybe I should add more? Maybe start a photo section? Maybe I should stay away from certain topics? Let me know!

Thanks everyone for your support!

Take care!
